India is in touch with both Iran and the United States on the complex issue.

Earlier, India was looking at the possibility of falling back on the rupee-rial arrangement for importing oil from Iran in the wake of USA sanctions. India has been working through diplomatic channels to look at the U.S.to grant exceptions from the upcoming sanctions. The countries' diplomats say they fear the play will backfire, allowing Iran to blame an outside entity for the country's issues. UCO Bank has handled similar transactions in the past, hence it will be the preferred bank. New Delhi has said that technical configuration of many refiners makes it dependent on Iran. According to data from Reuters, India is set to take 360,000-370,000 b/d of Iranian oil on average in September and October, compared with 658,000 b/d during April-August.
Iranian oil exports have dropped ahead of sanctions as several countries have begun to curtail their purchase from the Middle-East producer.
